Following Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s much anticipated statement, we at the UKSA are delighted by yesterday's announcements that as from 12th April 2021, personal care including spa can resume in England, under Step 2 of the roadmap outlined.
 
This is extremely welcome news for our industry which has been devastated by covid-19.
We celebrate with our fellow associations;  BABTAC, British Beauty Council & NHBF. Our jubilation only marred, with the news that unfortunately steam rooms and saunas still cannot reopen until 17th May 2021 at the earliest providing the 4 key criteria are met.
 
We at the UKSA will continue to work with fellow industry organisations, with a combined focus for financial support for the sector, including the personal care emergency fund and the VAT reduction to 5%. Many other industries have received funding grants and we have seen Hospitality receive the VAT reduction to 5%, and so we will continue to fight with tenacity for our industry. We will update you when we have more news. 

See the updated Close-contact services guidance we recommend starting with the 'What's changed' section.

COVID-19 RESPONSE − SPRING 2021 (publishing.service.gov.uk) 

It’s testament to you and your teams that there is little to no evidence of COVID-19 transmission linked to our sector. This has been integral in our work to lobby for this much needed outcome.

We continue to work closely with the devolved administrations in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland and will provide updates as soon as we are able to. 

We implore you to continue to operate in a COVID secure way and continue to observe the guidance in your respective areas over the coming weeks and months as we strive to maintain public health, raise the reputation of the sector and aid the short and long term recovery and well-being of the nation.

On behalf of the UKSA I’d like to take this opportunity to pass on our heartfelt thanks and tell you how proud we are of the hard work and dedication that you have demonstrated in upholding such high standards and compliance, we are honoured to represent you at government level.

 

Now let’s get back to doing what we do best!!
